. this is where ambassador chris stevens slept. part of a small sweep also meant to be a makeshift safe room. here on the floor between the bed and the chair is where cnn found the ambassador's journal. it is also the same room where the ambassador was located hours after the attack first began, separated by smoke from his security detail. the u.s. initially said the assault was a result of a demonstration turned violent. >> putting together the best information that we had available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. >> reporter: that was not the case. the state department is now saying that there was nothing unusual prior to the attack. at 8:30 p.m., everything was calm. and just over an hour later, armed men launched their assault. libyan officials say they warned the americans on many occasions about the growing threat from extremists. the compound

[ applause ] >>> thank you. thank you. we have got a great enthusiastic audience here. so happy to have them and you. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york maybelet most interesting moment in last week's presidential debate when the president claimed he labeled the attack on benghazi in the rose garden comment. mitt romney rightly challenged the thing and whip sawed by moderator candy crowley who rushed to offer asylum to president obama and saying that he had indeed labeled the benghazi atact as the result of terrorism . he mentioned acts of terror. but he did not attribute the assault in libya to such a thing. >>> no acts of terror will s
to find out the facts but as senator corker and i have said if there are cables from chris stevens to the state department that reflected what was written in his diary then the state department knew or should have known he was in grave danger before the attack in benghazi and he was not protected. second, why was he in benghazi to begin with? our embassy is in tripoli. we only have a consulate in benghazi. there are unanswered questions we need answers to now that would not taint the overall investigation but would help to clear a lot of the misunderstandings up. >> geraldo: what is your prediction? two of the perpetrators or the suspects in the crime now arrested in turkey reportedly. apparently we know more or less which militia, wil which al-qaa affiliated militia did more of the attacking on september 11th. do we take military action now? what would you counsel the president? >> my counsel would be to look back to 9/11 2001. we had a terrible terrorist attack in our country on that date. president at that time gathered the necessary information to, first of all, confirm where t
that their big bad from the beginning, the stuart steven sperry, the chief strategist very in the campaign was that all you had to be was not obama and that turned out to be wrong. you see it in the different channels they are doing now. no, you have to be yourself and not just not obama. >> let me quickly explain because i suspect a lot of you don't know who the stuart stevens is. hatha view were not alive and would know who stuart stevens is. stuart stevens is a republican strategist from mississippi, very interesting guy, at one time was a hollywood producer. all the ambassadors here like him. he also took steroids at one point to see the effect it would have on his ability to do extreme sports. he's a very interesting guy but clearly was first among equals in the romney campaign for a long time, very much espoused his theory of this is an election on the economy and all we have to do is beat the other guy. it's a referendum on obama. there was growing frustration in the campaign as particularly post-nomination, they seem to not work as well and romney seemed to fall further behind. it
his death and the death of ambassador stephens and -- stevens and others? to put that failure in context, after the first 9/11, the bush administration organized the full scale of invasion of afghanistan in just over three weeks. it's taken obama three weeks to send fbi agents to benghazi. so we're sending a signal of weakness and paralysis, and as we learned on september 11th 2001 and 2012, weakness is provocative. megyn: julie, pat smith's grief is real, but i don't want to make this all about her n. the same way brian terry's family grieves for him in the fast and furious operation, but that story's not entirely about him. it's about our government and its decisions and its honesty and transparency with the american people. and, you know, having witnessed those hearings yesterday, do you think that there are legitimate questions still out there about whether there was adequate security, whether they responded to the demands being made for more security on the ground at our consulate in benghazi and whether this administration has been transparent and open and truthful with
ambassador chris stevens dead. we hope you join us for these stories and more at 7:00 on on tv 36. . >>> our high school game of the week is a crosstown rivalry. antioch at deer valley. i've got a live report, coming up. . >>> time now for our high school game of the week. tonight, it's antioch high school going up against deer valley high. >> joe fonzi is live in antioch with what's happening on the field. hi, joe. >> reporter: hi, guys. there was a time when these two high schools were one and that officially makes this a crosstown rivalry. deer valley coach rich brooks with us -- rich woods. i'm sorry, rich. just tell me, has this developed into the kind of rivalry people thought it would when these two schools originally were created ? >> well, they started and i wasn't here, but i know they have a mayor's cup that goes along with this game. the winner takes a big plaque and so that put a little intensity to it and stuff, brings the rivalry up. >> reporter: whenever there's a cup or trophy involved, it's an officially rivalry! >> yeah, and we lost it last year. we had won it seven years
. on a rather somber note, one month ago tonight on the anniversary of 9/11, ambassador chris stevens and three other brave americans were killed in a terrorist attack in benghazi. the state department has now made clear there were no protesters there. it was a preplanned assault by heavily armed men. wasn't this a massive intelligence failure, vice president biden? >> it was. it was a tragedy, martha. chris stevens was one of our best. we lost three other brave americans. i can make absolutely two commitments to you and all the american people tonight. one, we will find and bring to justice the men who did this. and secondly, we will get to the bottom of it, and whatever -- wherever the facts lead us, wherever they lead us, we will make clear to the american public, because whatever mistakes are made will not be made again. when you're looking at a president, martha, it seems to me that you should take a look at his most important responsibility. that's caring for the national security of the country. the best way to do that is take a look at how he's handled the issues of the day. on iraq, th
just about half a mile away. you know the story. four americans killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens, foreign service officer shawn smith and security officers glen doherty and ty woods. the chair of the government committee that initiated this hearing opened up by saying the state department was, quote, coming clean as it released new details just last night. those details include officials saying that attack at the consulate in benghazi was impossible to defend. and today, a regional security officer testified the assault was something the united states had never seen before at a diplomatic outpost. >> i had not seen an attack of such ferocity and intensity previously in libya. nor in my time with the diplomatic security service. i'm concerned that this attack signals a new security reality, just as the 1983 beirut marine barracks bombings did for the marines, the 1998 east africa embassy bombings did for the state department, and 9/11 did for our entire country. however, we must remember that it is critical that we balance our risk mitigation efforts with the needs of our diplomat
, and "wall street journal" senior economic writer, steven moore, and naomi wolf are among our guests. may have accidently or intentionality further confounded the search for truth with the initial claims of responsibility last night for benghazi, but the claims shifted like the story itself of the administration's role in the benghazi tragedy. to assess whether this is a massive coverup as some claim or the failings of well-intentioned government officials as secretary clinton put it, fog of war, and how all of this will play in tonight's presidential debate, author of the new york times best seller, "the amateur," and fox news political analyst, joe trippy, who is at hofstra university at the site of the important debate. let me first, joe, go to you, and as the sense there, for the debate, the stakes are high for the president. is there any special element in the atmosphere there? your thoughts? >> no, there's a lot of anticipation here. ewe can feel it. a lot more, i think, energy and excitement than even the first debate. i mean, i think again a rematch or, you know, round two, whatev
been on the fence and might push them in the romny camp. >>> ambassador stevens including the day he died, begged for more security and told them, that the security was horribly lacking. doesn't that factor in to the damage? >>> what was he worried about was religious extremist who were intending to kill innocent people including people in the red cross. they were attacked with impugnity in the red cross. not just on the day he died but the days leading up to it, james rosen with the fox state department correspondant got the cables sent from libya to the state department. i don't know where they went from there and i am not trying to make it political. one, first of all, we have to get justice for what happened to our people there and figure out what went wrong and prevent it from happening again and the american people deserve answers as to why there are so many different store store september 12th and president obama left and you know he went to vegas for a fund raiser, the biggest strategic mistake. as commander in chief he should have stayed and got a handle on it. he might not

is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament
of chris stevens and three other americans house committee is set to hear testimony this week by the american security officers to tell congress the pleas for the enhanced safety measures in libya in days leading up to 9/11 were rebuffed by the higher-ups at the state department in washington. >> my understanding that there were requests made and the requests were denied. >> that tracks with the account offered to cbs news today by the former head of the u.s. special forces team in libya. >> so all the experts on the ground are telling headquarters at the state department we need this. the answer kept coming back as -- >> you've got to do with less. for what reasons i don't know. >> the f.b.i. was on the ground there a week ago, to get as much information as we can. we need to learn from the information. >> official in charge of all personnel fax silty and operation worldwide is under secretary of state for management patrick f. kennedy, highly regarded ziller is vant who has been in the post since 2007. fox news learned that on the evening of september 12, kennedy privately b
that could be sensitive but if we already know that the ambassador stevens requested in the diary talked about concerns for his safety and those in the compound, i don't think it is a leap to assume that he conveyed that to the state department by cables or that sort of thing. so where are the cables? >>guest: that is exactly right. we foe how to do this. we know how to go behind closed doors. we would like to think we know how to keep secrets but that doesn't always seem to be the case. the ambassador was absolutely concerned, as was his security detail, and, again, this is the president's war. we have the president the united states and his administration, opening up negotiations with our number one, arguably, enemy there, the muslim brotherhood. we have requests for security which they will not give yet our guys in paris seem to get all of the security they want. >>neil: they were blaming that on republicans. >>guest: well, of course, of course, it is very easy to blame the republicans. that is nonsense. it's any descriptive word you want to use. i just think that for the vice preside
voters in ohio and wisconsin. now we have an answer. it's steven einhorn's family foundation. who is he? he's a hedge fund manager on the milwaukee board, used to be on the board of milwaukee repertoire theater, even treasurer for think tank, and a major donor. they donated maximum $5,000 to mitt romney's campaign. his wife gave more than $5,000 to paul ryan and more than $30,000 to rnc and gave $50,000 to republican governor paul walker. last week clear channel took down the billboards. but why would they want the signs up in the first place? quote, perhaps chicago public relations firm could answer why the einhorns only felt it necessary to target legal voters in minority communities and why they didn't feel the need to do this public service across wisconsin where a majority of residents are white or put their names on it rather than hiding behind the cowardly veil of anonymity? a great thing about this country is you can do whatever you want with your money. and as i showed, he's given money to many cultural groups but now this, this is what he decided to spend money on? since presi

braechz, and attacks in libya leading up to the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. for example, stevens, they say, took regular early morning jogs around tripoli with members of the security detail, but according to their sources, a pro-gadhafi facebook page trumpheted those runs, posting a threat against the ambassador along with a stock photo of him. stevens stopped running for about a week. then resumed. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless, and he took the advice always of his security forces, including sometimes when they said that meetings needed to be canceled, so i think that this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security, and a failure of judgment, but not of the now diocesed ambassador. >> there were other security braechz, according to the committee and a sale that blew a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission. two rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and the convoy carrying the british ambassador was attacked by a militant with a grenad

was still underway, when we did not know where chris stevens was ambassador chris stevens and certainly did not know he'd been killed and romney was already accusing the president of making a partisan political attack against the president for being responsible for this attack. president obama i thought one of the strongest moments last night, two first he took full responsibility. >> yes. >> bill: this idea that he's trying to throw hillary under the bus, he said i'm the commander-in-chief, the buck stops here. >> right. >> bill: then he turned to mitt and said the idea that you accused me, here. >> the suggestion that anybody on my team, whether the secretary of state our u.n. ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we've lost four of our own governor is offensive. that's not what we do. >> it is offensive it's deeply offensive. he called it exactly like it is. just think back to the 9/11 attack of 2001. also an intelligence failure also where the president ignored signs, but we weren't prepared for that. what was his response to the democratic party the? you sa
to ambassador stevens? >> no specific threats to him per se. but take a look at this facebook page the committee released not only a facebook page but it was one of this extremist groups that warned not only about -- there was a picture of chris stevens -- i think we're going to bring that picture up. but also said that they were very concerned about drone attacks in libya. and there was a u.s. drone actually, wolf, that actually targeted this group in libya, one of their training camps. >> elise, thanks very much for that report. let's get to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. she's been talking to her sources. she's getting reaction. what are you learning, jessica? >> wolf, the white house is not commenting on the document release, senior white house officials continue to maintain that in time officials back up what the administration was saying all along that this will prove to be not an attack that had been preplanned and in time we will probably learn that what susan rice had said on that morning show was accurate. but we will have to wait and see that over time as more int
